Abstract

It is shown that preloading of fine-grained copper with a the grain size of 0.5 m by a shock wave of intensity ≈25–50 GPa does not lead to changes in its internal microstructure and mechanical properties, and the dislocation density increases only slightly from 1.8 · 1011 cms-2 in the initial state to (3.1–3.6) · 1011 cms-2 after shockwave loading. An increase in shock wave intensity to pressures > 55 GPa leads to a decrease in the dislocation density to 2.5 · 109 cms-2, an increase in the grain size to ≈19 fum, the occurrence of microtwins inside the grains, and a reduction in the mechanical properties of fine-grained copper to the level of coarse-crystalline copper.
